Flat-Ornament Finishing Instructions
• Padded mounting board • Fabric-marking pencil • Straight pins • Sewing machine (optional)
1. Measure desired distance (1/8"–1") from stitching on all sides and draw a line this distance from edge of design all around, staying on grain line of fabric when possible. Do not cut fabric. Place ornament over a piece of backing fabric (right sides together) and pin layers together along edge of stitching.
2. Sew around ornament along drawn line, leaving bottom of ornament open. Trim layers to 1/4" seam allowance. Trim corners to 1/8" seam allowance. Turn ornament to right side.
3. Using ornament as a pattern, cut mounting board. Insert mounting board into ornament and sew the opening closed.
4. Attach trim and hanger.
